The Art of Clarinet Playing-Part 1

I play the clarinet because I enjoy the sound that it makes. Sometimes, the clarinet is a vital part in the music and without it the music will fall apart. I also play because of all of the opportunities that the instrument offers. Louis Armstrong, a famous jazzman, had a clarinet and a trombone in his immediate band. The clarinet accompanies many instruments beautifully. It sounds great with the flute. This may not come as a surprise to you, but it sounds great in four-part harmony with other clarinets. Of course, if they are playing the same part and they are tuned correctly, then they will sound wonderful. I have been playing the clarinet for about three years. I am very good at it. My band instructor switched me from a regular clarinet to a bass clarinet. A bass clarinet is a lower register clarinet and it is much larger. I will be switching back hopefully. I just enjoy the regular clarinet better. Benny Goodman is a famous clarinet player. He was born on May 30, 1909 in Chicago, Illinois. He was a jazz musician. He is just one of the many clarinetists out there-deceased and alive. I wrote this because I wanted to explain to people about playing the clarinet and how much fun it is. If it weren’t for marching band and two friends, I would not be playing the clarinet right now. I have a lot of fun playing this instrument. It is my life long wish to teach people how to play this instrument and to tell them about it. This part is an introduction to the next part that will be coming soon. Thank you, and please respect the music.
